Yes it can be done by custom arrangements like you already mentioned by configuring job scheduler.

Yes this is the expected behavior as at code level , there is no business rule written to
run production run automatically once the Production Run is scheduled. It can be because this
nature varies from one manufacturing firm to another. Just for eg: there is shortage in raw-materials
needed for production run, in that case production run cannot be started and completed until
and unless we procure materials.

Yes you have to configure job scheduler to achieve this.
